The Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) has announced its intention to manually transmit the results of the Bayelsa governorship election scheduled for November 11.
The State INEC Resident Electoral Commissioner, Mr. Obo Effanga, shared this during a meeting with religious leaders and faith-based organizations in Yenagoa on Wednesday. Effanga emphasized INEC’s commitment to ensuring a free, fair, and credible election, with only BVAS-accredited voters being eligible to cast their votes.
“Immediately you are given the ballot paper you can start voting.
“We are in the fourth week of collection of PVCs and it will end on Oct. 11. Those who have not collected their cards should go to INEC office in their local government areas,” he said.
He mentioned that a total of 16 political parties had nominated candidates for the upcoming election.
Rev. Joseph Belema, a religious leader, expressed his appreciation for INEC’s efforts and emphasized the importance of conducting a free, fair, and credible election as a means to select capable leaders. He also urged the candidates not to view the election as a life-or-death struggle, reminding them that only one person would ultimately be elected.
